Is it possible to take a csv file stored in the res/raw resource directory and use it to populate a table in the sqlite3 database? My thought was that, if there was a way to do a bulk import for the entire file into the table then that would be cleaner and faster than iterating over each line in the file and executing individual insert statements...
but I'm having trouble applying those statements in my Android application. My first thought was to try something like the following...but no luck:
I need to somehow backup my applitcations database to a file so that it can later be retored using that file. The only way I would do it would be by reading every table to an xml ffile but it seems soo ineficient. The data does not have to be humand readable.

I'm trying to start unit testing on my application (should have done so from the beginning). I've got an Eclipse project structure set up and everything seems to work well, but...
I'm subclassing SQLiteOpenHelper to access the application database. This works well for the application, but when using the same class in the unit tests, it writes to the same database as the actual application. This is obviously rather irritating, since unit test data shows up when developing and testing the actual application.
What's the best way to make the SQLiteOpenHelper class write to a different database file when being called from the unit tests?
My plan is to prepopulate a database on a virtual device and then include database in the distribution of my app.However, I can't find the database file.Is it on my hard disk some where?How do I get it?I tried connecting using adb, I did an "ls" and then got really scared by this obscure list of directories.

How can I secure the database file created with my first application?
I am working on a project for a belgium Tv Guide. Now I download a database (.db) file from a server to the sdcard to work with. In this database are 2 tabels, tvchannels and tvprograms.

- have a database that contains a word, and the name of an image file associated with that word. - the words from the database will be displayed in a listview - when the word is selected, a new activity will start displaying the word and the image in an image view.
Would it be best to store the terms in an array and have the list view populate from this array and then pull from the database onitemclick? Or can the list view be populated with the terms from the database?
Will android be able to display the image if the name of the file is stored in the db?
I am developing an app on Android that will randomly pick and display an inspirational quotation (or verse) from a large collection of quotations. On Android I can choose between a flat file and an SQLite database. The app should satisfy the following conditions: Be scalable to 10^6 quotations and/or verses Be very fast (i.e. retrieve and display a quotation, immediately at the touch of a button) Be able to load new quotations from an external source (in a format I have not yet decided) What data format must I use?
I have seen other posts similar to this one but none of the solutions listed work for me. When I use the following command: adb pull /data/data/com.mydomain.myappname/databases/MyDatabase.db / home/me the following error results. failed to copy '/data/data/com.mydomain.myappname/databases/ MyDatabase.db' to '/home/me/MyDatabase.db': Permission denied I have no problems with the emulator. I am using a Dev Phone 2.
I am trying to inject a long text entry into a SQLite database, in a TEXT field. This text has new lines in it (i.e. it spans multiple paragraphs). I can get the new lines to show up if I do the INSERT manually:
INSERT INTO "LOGENTRY" VALUES(5,40,'PLACE','line1 line2 line4 ',1283990533315,'4A','TEXT','',NULL);
but if I have the equivalent text in a CSV file and attempt to .import it into the table, I get an error that it's expecting more columns than exist (as soon as the new line is encountered, the program assumes it's the end of the input and thus it's missing columns). Is this possible? Or is the only way to manually do each INSERT?
